    Default weight gain goal....

    So someone commented on another thread that they clicked my baby space and was confused bc it looked so similar to my 09 space..... then she realized it WAS my 09 space..... SO jsut for giggles I went back and looked over to see when I started showing etc..... MY goal this pregnancy... not to become the WHALE that I was in 09!!!!!!! before I unlink it check it out and see how big I got! I know we were talking about size on another thread but Ic an't remember which!

    But you are a small gal, so you get to gain more.

    I don't worry unless Doc mentions it. But I did gain 60-ish lbs with DS, that didn't come off for a good two years or so. I am not a small person, but family history has shown we BALLOON with our pregnancies.

    But you still look like you are within a healthy range.

    The only reason I think I lost that much was because I was running my butt off at the hospital. Hard not to when you are doing nearly 20 miles per day.


    EDIT: That came out a little wrong.

    Looks normal to me. I gained 45. Hoping to gain less this time. Like hopefully not much more than 20, which would put me at the same ending weight.

    I''m pretty sure I put on over 40 lbs last time. Probably more. I stopped looking when I hit 200. LOL. I'm starting out about 13 lbs lighter this time so I hope I can stay under 200. The midwife said they prefer you to gain less than 35 lbs. We shall see! LOL

    With DS I gained 13 lbs, yes I know you can hate on me. I wasn't even trying to not gain much. DS was on the smaller side, so wouldn't neccessarily recommended it. I always joke that at my 6 week postpartum I weighed what I did when I got pregnant, but nothing was in the same place! With DD I gained about 30 pounds. I never did quite lose all of it, but got back to within 7 pounds of my pre-preganancy weight. With this pregnancy I would like to stay at 20-25 pounds. I sure hope that I can stick with my goal!

    My goal is to gain as little as possible; but still be healthy for the baby. I'm starting this pregnancy about 45ish pds over my ideal weight. So, I don't want to gain too much and put my health or the baby at risk. A few weeks ago, I started a water aerobics class and I think I will continue that unless the doc tells me otherwise.

    FWIW, I don't think you look like a "whale" either. It's always strange to see ourselves MUCH bigger than normal.

    I gained about 35 with my first and 38 with my second. I lost the weight plus some both times so it'll be interesting to see what happens this time around. I tend to let myself indulge in too many treats when I'm pg so I'm hoping to be a little more disciplined this time and avoid the 5-10 extra pounds. But as long as I stay around the same, I won't complain much.
